The first Westside location of Teddy’s Red Tacos is just as good as the original in Boyle Heights (which made our list of the Best Tacos In LA). And while the atmosphere in a shop off the boardwalk in Venice doesn’t quite live up to the original truck parked on train tracks, the rich, spicy beef birria is exactly the same. It’s the only thing on the menu, and the way to order it is in deluxe platter form, which comes with a quesadilla, mulita, tostada, taco, and pozole. You’ll be extremely full and happy.
